The NDRC said in the recent media interview that Chin

na will adhere to the principle of fair and free trade in its management of rare-earth ex

ports, but “the Chinese people will be unhappy” if the country’s exported rare-earth metals are used against China.

Since the start of the China-US trade friction more than a year ago, Washington has taken many measures, includin

g taking advantage of its edge in high-end chip making, to stymie Chinese high-tech firms, the NDRC said.

The NDRC added that in its latest move to dampen China’s industrial development, the US governme

nt has used an executive order to effectively ban products of Chinese tech giant Huawei from being use

d in the US, which has been widely seen as unreasonable and unfair. Having been increasingly used in high-tech ind

ustries, rare-earth metals are critical in making products from advanced weaponry to chips and hybrid cars.

ess. And the China-proposed Belt and Road Initiativ althoug

ugh criticized by much of the West, and the US in particular-could bring dramatic

improvements in physical and digital connectivity to Central Asia and parts of Africa.

Further advances in critical infrastructure will create important growth opportunities for developing countries via e-commerce, mobile paym

ents, and related financial services. The experience of China suggests that these digital platforms, and the ecosy

stems that develop around them, are powerful engines for incremental, highly inclusive growth.

China, of course, is a very large, homogenous market. If smaller, lower-income developing countries are to bene

fit from equally rapid inclusive growth, the digital platforms will have to be regional and international in scope.

Paul Tapponnier, a distinguished research professor at the

 administration’s Institute of Crustal Dynamics, said he “wholeheartedly” welcomes the project. China boasts unique

conditions to carry out the experiment as most of its earthquakes occur “inside the land under the feet of th

e people” rather than in the ocean, and there are many active faults in the country.

“My personal hope is that if there is any way or any future in trying

to forecast earthquakes, it may very well happen in C

hina,” said Tapponnier, also foreign associate member of the United States’ National Academy of Sciences.

According to the administration, the country is stricken by an average 20 earthqua

kes above magnitude 5 every year. There is an earthquake above magnitude 8 every decade. Since the turn of

the new millennium, more than 91,800 people have been killed by earthquakes in the country.

The industrial park sits on nearly 26 hectares of land in

Ballard County and has been set up to use the carp acquired by the fish center. Twelve tracts of land inside the park are for sale.

On opening day, eight tracts were already claimed, with most of the investors coming from China.

Jiang Chenguang, an internet businessman from the Guangxi

Zhuang autonomous region, launched the United Fisheries Group to process carp into fish balls

and fish cakes for export to China. Two Rivers Foods will process smoked fish, and has already shipped a smoker to the site.

A business called Lakeside City has been formed to process carp into salted fish, while

Eco Fish, which already existed, has hired fishermen to catch carp, process them and recycle waste into fertilizer.

Zhu Hongwei, a hotel and catering businessman from Jiangsu province, decided on the day the indus

trial park opened to buy one tract of land for food processing. “I will decide how to process the fish later,” Zhu said.
